What to see in Samut Songkhram

The main attraction here is clearly the market on the railway tracks. But Samut Songkhram is also very close to some of the most interesting floating markets in Thailand such as Amphawa (9 km), Tha Kha (20 km) or Damnoen Saduak (25 km) or Bang Noi which is, I think, less interesting. There is also Don Hoi Lot, a sand bar off the coast known for its shells (that you can taste in the street food stalls in Samut Songkhram) which I did not go to see but which is often quoted among the places to visit here.
I also listed at the end of the page some good tours, excursions and activities that you can do in Samut Songkhram or from Samut Songkhram. Click here to see them.

Must-visits in Samut Songkhram

Amphawa Floating Market Samut Songkhram

Amphawa Floating Market

ตลาดน้ำอัมพวา
My opinion :
Amphawa is 9 km away from Samut Songkhram. It is really easy to go discover its floating market. It takes place from Friday to Sunday at noon and is particularly interesting to see at night. At night is also the famous fireflies visit.
Damnoen Saduak Floating Market Samut Songkhram

Damnoen Saduak Floating Market

ตลาดน้ำดำเนินสะดวก
My opinion :
Probably the most famous and visited floating markets, it is still nice to see ,early in the morning especially
Mae Klong Railway Market Samut Songkhram

Mae Klong Railway Market

ตลาดรถไฟ
My opinion :
Mae Klong is also named Samut Songkhram. The vendors fold the stalls back at each pass of the train.
